I frequently speak to family and friends about getting delivered from a bad habit or negative way of thinking. I said this recently to a family member and she said, “You oughta stop saying you need to be delivered. Just be stable for a while.”
My justification was that I feel stable but that I need to keep asking for God’s help to stay stable.
At first, she made feel self-conscious for admitting that I frequently ask God for help. And then hours after the conversation was over, I began to wonder if I was asking God for too much of His help.
God brought to mind that it was okay to ask for deliverance. Plus, God brought to my mind that deliverance was like lumps in a cake.
A cake may turn out okay with lumps in it; but it’s much better if you first get all the lumps out before you bake that cake.
We too, can have salvation but our life and our witness will be so much better if we get the lumps out.
So no matter if your lump is: a bad attitude, having difficulty getting along with others, lying, cheating, or whatever, ask for deliverance.
We all need to rid ourselves of a few lumps! Share which lump He got out you!
